I got into consulting because I expected interesting work in a team and client facing environment. Also expected to gain skills. Now i’m reading through hundreds of pages of documents and copying and pasting into excel, and will be doing so for a whole year.

K has a lot of staff aug too so be careful but definitely apply for other roles and ask folks in that role what they’re doing.
